What is Dual Language?

  • The School District of Waukesha Dual Language Bilingual Immersion Program welcomes learners from all language experiences to the opportunity to become bilingual and biliterate in both English and Spanish.   Students become bilingual by learning side by side with English speaking, Spanish speaking and bilingual students at the start of 4K, 5K or 1st grade.
